[The author] sets the stage by drawing a ... conceptual map of the world economy and the different categories into which countries fall. Then ... he explains why, over the past two hundred years, wealth has diverged across the planet in the manner that it has and why the poorest nations have been so markedly unable to escape the cruel vortex of poverty. The groundwork laid, he explains his methods for arriving ... at a holistic diagnosis of a country's situation and the options it faces. Rather than deliver a worldview to readers from on high, [the author] leads them along the learning path he himself followed, telling the ... stories of his own work in Bolivia, Poland, Russia, India, China, and Africa as a way to bring readers to a broad-based understanding of the array of issues countries can face and the way the issues interrelate. He concludes by drawing on everything he has learned to offer an integrated set of solutions to the interwoven economic, political, environmental, and social problems that most frequently hold societies back. In the end, he leaves readers with an understanding, not of how daunting the world's problems are, but how solvable they are - and why making the effort is a matter both of moral obligation and strategic self-interest+-+5301858965262233ocn167764116book20070.25Sachs, JeffreyCommon wealth : economics for a crowded planetAssessment of the environmental degradation, rapid population growth, and extreme poverty that threaten global peace and prosperity, with practical solutions based on a new economic paradigm for our crowded planet+-+2276579406181413ocn711989050book20110.21Sachs, JeffreyThe price of civilization : reawakening American virtue and prosperityOffers a diagnosis of the country's economic ills and argues that Americans can restore the virtues of fairness, honesty, and foresight as the foundations of national prosperity+-+K693155596181214ocn043476195file19970.37Woo, Wing ThyeEconomies in transition comparing Asia and Eastern Europe+-+6576827175324160820ocn028111035book19930.39Sachs, JeffreyPoland's jump to the market economy+-+776846717532486817ocn018351577book19880.63Sachs, JeffreyDeveloping country debt and the world economySixteen papers examine debt crises that occurred before WWII, political factors that contribute to poor economic policies, the role of commercial banks and the International Monetary Fund during the current crisis, the effect of developed country economies on the debtors, and possible solutions to the debt crisis.

In the last quarter century, we have seen the surprising and sobering consequences of this wealth, producing what is now known as the ""resource curse."" Countries with large endowments of natural resources, such as oil and gas, often do worse than their poorer neighbors. Their resource wealth frequently leads to lower growth rates, greater volatility, more corruption, and, in extreme cases, devastating civil wars.

This paper discusses various extensions of the basic model. First, we amend the textbook model to show how limitations on a government'staxing authority may greatly affect its optimal borrowing strategy. Second, we explore the implications of adebtor country's option to repudiate debt. Third, we show that efficient lending may require collective actions by bank syndicates, and that a breakdown in collective action can result in serious inefficiencies and even financial panics4406ocn829745034book20130.24Sachs, JeffreyTo move the world : JFK's quest for peace"An inspiring look at the historic foreign policy triumph of John F.

Sachs has been at the forefront of international economic problem solving. But Sachs turns his attention back home in The Price of Civilization, a book that is essential reading for every American. In an impassioned, and personal voice, he offers not only a searing and incisive diagnosis of our country's economic ills but also an urgent call for Americans to restore the virtues of fairness, honesty, and foresight as the foundations of national prosperity4228ocn019845998book19890.73Sachs, JeffreyNew approaches to the Latin American debt crisis36114ocn056058485file20010.59World Health OrganizationMacroeconomics and health investing in health for economic development : report of the Commission on Macroeconomics and HealthThe World Health Organization (WHO) presents the December 20, 2001 Commission on Macroeconomics and Health (CMH) report "Macroeconomics and Health: Investing in Health for Economic Development."

Jeffrey Sachs'celebrated economist, special advisor to the Secretary General of the United Nations, and author of the influential bestseller The End of Poverty'disagrees. In his view, poverty is a problem that can be solved. With single-minded determination he has attempted to put into practice his theories about ending extreme poverty, to prove that the world's most destitute people can be lifted onto "the ladder of development." In 2006, Sachs launched the Millennium Villages Project, a daring five-year experiment designed to test his theories in Africa. The first Millennium village was in Sauri, a remote cluster of farming communities in western Kenya. The initial results were encouraging. With his first taste of success, and backed by one hundred twenty million dollars from George Soros and other likeminded donors, Sachs rolled out a dozen model villages in ten sub-Saharan countries. Once his approach was validated it would be scaled up across the entire continent. At least that was the idea. For the past six years, Nina Munk has reported deeply on the Millennium Villages Project, accompanying Sachs on his official trips to Africa and listening in on conversations with heads-of-state, humanitarian organizations, rival economists, and development experts. She has immersed herself in the lives of people in two Millennium villages: Ruhiira, in southwest Uganda, and Dertu, in the arid borderland between Kenya and Somalia. Accepting the hospitality of camel herders and small-hold farmers, and witnessing their struggle to survive, Munk came to understand the real-life issues that challenge Sachs's formula for ending global poverty. THE IDEALIST is the profound and moving story of what happens when the abstract theories of a brilliant, driven man meet the reality of human life481ocn848775765rcrd20130.12Munk, NinaThe idealist [Jeffrey Sachs and the quest to end poverty]A powerful portrayal of Jeffrey Sachs's ambitious quest to end global poverty.

Though he achieved notoriety in the 80s and 90s by pioneering a brutal form of free market engineering he called "shock therapy," Sachs has since positioned himself as a voice of the center-left, providing moral condemnation of Third World debt and structural adjustment, and intervening on African development, especially through his Millenium Villages Project in Sub-Saharan Africa. But appearances can be superficial. Jeffrey Sachs: The Strange Case of Dr. Shock & Mr. Aid is an account of how Sachs successfully rebranded himself as an evangelical development expert and savior of the Third World, while in fact reinforcing the neoliberal project itself. Based on documentary research and on-the-ground investigation of the Millenium Villages Project, Jeffrey Sachs exposes its namesake's Jekyll/Hyde complex, showing Sachs to be no more than a new, more human face of the neoliberal project itself"--32ocn813522238book20130.81Munk, NinaBending history11ocn047141539art1993Sachs, Jeffrey D11ocn754865106mix0.47Hamburg, David APioneers in the prevention of mass violence :01ocn033787323book1992Makkibin sakkusu no gurōbaru moderu ni tsuite : sono kihon kōzō to tokusei+-+5301858965+-+5301858965Fri Mar 21 15:57:49 EDT 2014batch45906
